Feds: Love of Cuba drove 2 spies who face prison

A retired State Department worker faces up to life in prison and his wife a lengthy prison term for spying for Cuba for nearly 30 years.
Walter and Gwendolyn Myers both pleaded guilty in a case in which the couple is said to have stolen U.S. secrets because of a shared communist ideology and admiration of the Cuban revolution. They are being sentenced Friday.
Federal prosecutors say the plea deal was driven by the U.S. government's need to find out all the information the two supplied to Cuba.
